Subject: Good Morgan, anybody, here's evening...
This is Henry Morgan in the free-wheeling (absurdist ad-lib business between snatches of records) quarter hour format that made him a NYC radio cult hero before the war. These particular shows also feature some of his infamous ads for Adler Elevator Shoes ("Now you can be taller than she is."). It makes for great listening.

It's really interesting to compare these shows to the more standard comedy-variety shows Morgan did at the other end of the 40s:
